what #rate are the springs you're getting? 2nd gens with plate bumpers usually want 600-650#, depending on the weight up front
expos are rated at around 11" of travel, so make sure your shocks can handle the travel
up front, im not exactly sure for 2nd gen MT setups, maybe 9" or so
and there isnt much you can do to save the boots, they're consumables that will get worn with the lift; the inherent quality of the lift puts the CV's at an angle

new brakelines are always a good idea when lifting over stock. You don't want the brakeline to be your limit strap
